"Let me be there / Let me be there for your heart / Let me be there, I can be there 'til you're whole / You weren't touched by a man in so long / 'Cause the last time it was way too strong."
The Weeknd could also be referencing Jolie's ongoing custody battle in the song "I Heard You're Married," with the Grammy winner singing "The way you hypnotized me, I could tell / You've been in control / You manifested this, but girl, I blame myself / Things I shoulda known / The whispers that I hear / These words I need to hear from you / And I know this is a fling / But you're hidin' someone's ring / It hurts to think I'm sharin' you."
